We’ve collected the hardcover books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending May 08, 2011–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.

(Debuted at #1) The Kane Chronicles: Throne of Fire (Book 2) by Rick Riordan: “In this exciting second installment of the three-book series, Carter and Sadie, offspring of the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane, embark on a worldwide search for the Book of Ra, but the House of Life and the gods of chaos are determined to stop them.”

(Debuted at #2) Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris: “With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover Eric Northman and his ‘child’ Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master.”

(Debuted at #7) Fancy Nancy’s Marvelous Mother’s Day Brunch by Jane O’Connor & illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser: “Nancy wants to show her mom all the love and appreciation she deserves on Mother’s Day—but getting her present together proves a bit messy. Will she pull it off?”
